The Austin Arts Collective is a group of people that support the visual arts in Austin, Texas.
We include visual artists of any expression: jewelry makers, photographers, painters, welders, graphic artists, ceramicists, sculptors, glass blowers, weavers, print makers, seamstresses, etc.
You are equally welcome if you are an art buyer, enthusiast, publisher, historian, curator, etc.
Come meet with us to informally network and socialize. Pass some cards around. Get to know each other. We primarily post all art openings that we can find so that you have the opportunity to view art and meet the artists. We want people to Think Austin, Think Art.
Be sure to check out our Discussion Forum for valuable resource guides in the arts. And, feel free to send us an email if you are interested in hosting an event.
The language of art is alive and well in Austin, Texas!

Viscosity Jan 11-Feb 17, 2019
Reception with Artist’s talk by Jack Michael Feb 9,[masked]:00pm-8:00pm
Organized by Flash Collective, Viscosity is a visual art exhibition featuring hand pulled prints by 24 self-identified female artists of varying ethnic backgrounds from around the United States, Canada and Finland. A term often used in the print studio, viscosity refers to the degree of ink's resistance to flow, or its ability to adhere to a surface. In this exhibition, the term functions as a metaphor for the shifting status of women in the field of print. The increase of women in print has not yielded an equitable space for the female voice within this arena. Viscosity is a declaration against marginalization.
Viscosity consists of work by each by the following artists: Judith Baumann, Katherine Brimberry, Marissa Cartagena, Deborah Chaney, Veronica Ceci, Candice Corgan, Ana Cortez, Maria Erikson, Jill Graham, Rachel Heberling, Maggie Lomeli, Elizabeth Melnyczuk, Jack Michael, Ashley Ortiz-Diaz, Angela Pilgrim, Kathryn Polk, Jessica Robles, Zeinab Saab, Kristin Sarette, Beth Sheehan, Lyla Shlon, Klaire Smith, Bryn Sumner, Ashley Taylor and Erika Walker.
